Coronavirus Statement



We are now able to allow livery access, including loan livery and to taking bookings for lessons in a restricted way in order to still conform with national requirements, both to protect clients and our staff and students.

The following criteria will apply:

All liveries, including Stablemates, must arrange time slots with the yard prior to arriving.

We are now able to offer small group lessons (up to five people), private lessons and semi-private   Lessons will are now available for 60 minutes, 45 minutes and 30 minutes. Pony Club and British Horse Society training and assessment is available for individuals or groups.

We can only accept bookings from competent riders or those who are assisted by a competent individual from the same household. They must be able to take the horse unaided from the designated area to the arena, organise the tack and mount ready for their lesson, and return the horse to the designated area  at the end of the lesson. Mounting and dismounting will take place during the lesson time slot. 

We will only take bookings from clients who are from households who have been observing strict social distancing, are non-symptomatic and who have observed all government requirements during lockdown.

Should your situation change between booking a lesson and the lesson day we will accept cancellations with no fee providing we have a minimum of 1 hours notice.
